Relieving Exercise for Manchester Back Pain Relief

“Exercise? But my neck (or back) hurts!”

Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries hears you! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows your back hurts. Many Manchester chiropractic patients come for just that reason: Manchester back pain. Back/Neck pain relief - whether because of Manchester spinal stenosis or a Manchester disc herniation whether it is in the back/neck only or extends down the leg/arm and into the foot/hand - is possible through our combined effort: Manchester chiropractic care including spinal manipulation and exercise.


Low back pain patients with spinal stenosis and leg pain show decreased cross sectional area of the spinal extensor muscles and fat infiltration on MRI. What does that mean? There is a a loss of muscle power in the low back when pain is present. (1) One of the causes of low back pain is lumbar hyperlordosis (sway back). A type of therapeutic exercise known as Perez-Olmedo revealed improvement in 60% of youths with hyperlordosis. (2) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries checks for such causes and has just the exercise to tackle the issue.

Manchester NECK PAIN

Neck pain patients experience less neck pain and improved dysfunction neck posture and range of motion with thoracic spine manipulation. The relief lasts up to 6 months later. (3) This goes to show that spinal manipulation is an essential component in Manchester pain relief treatment plans. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is skilled at setting these up for our Manchester chiropractic patients!

Manchester BACK PAIN

Chronic low back pain patients with weak stomach muscles were cared for with abdominoplasty (a “tummy tuck”).  This tightens and stabilizes the ab muscles by making the muscles work better and increase intraabdominal pressure to make them better spine stabilizers. Such abdominal strengthening should be considered a way for patients with weak ab muscles and intractable low back pain who have failed conservative management. (4) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries can recommend you some individualized exercises that will be just right for you before resorting to a surgery!

INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION (cramp-like pain in the legs upon exercise like walking)

Peripheral artery disease patients with intermittent claudication were cared for with a home-based exercise program a supervised exercise program and usual-care control. Both exercise programs had patients exercise with a step activity monitor for 12 weeks. The patients continued with these programs which both proved useful in improving claudication measures comparable to a standard supervised exercise program. Such exercise seems to be more successful in increasing daily activity in the community setting than supervised exercise. (5) If you are one of those Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is prepared to be your community!


Persistent non-specific low back pain pushes some Manchester back pain patients over the edge…with good reason! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries gets it! Compared with slight or other interventions Pilates is a good option to try to decrease back pain and ease disability. (7)


Even after back surgery, exercise eases pain. Aerobic exercise beginning one month after first time single-level lumbar microdiscectomy resulted in a more distinct functional improvement than home exercise. (8) Whatever it takes to help decrease back pain is the important factor. Listen in to a PODCAST that shares how Cox Technic helps relieve post-surgical back pain.
